Well that sounds like a bit of a shit show :-/.  Did they at least contribute to the kosher food and table/chair rentals?

@asianyoushi:  He sure does! In her last post she said her FBIL wanted the wedding on that day so that they could celebrate both together. 

 

OP I’ve been waiting for this and for some reason I thought it would all kind of work out but I guess not.  Seriously he only brought champagne for 2 people??? And I can’t believe they were so disrespectful to you and your family in YOUR home.   I really don’t like this guy.  I’m sorry you have to push your honeymoon back but I’m sure you will still have lots of fun.  I really hope this is the last of selfish stunts but I’m not holding my breath.  Good luck with him!!

You are truly an amazingly gracious hostess and lady!

FBIL is a complete moron.

@flapperphilosopher:  Well, I was hoping for a more positive update about your situation but, given your FBIL’s IQ of a teaspoon, this sounds about accurate. Hopefully you being a BM will work out and everything goes a bit more smoothly going forward.

@flapperphilosopher:  I’ve been waiting for an update to your Original Post. I can’t say I’m surprised by how it went. Your FBIL sounds like he has absolutely no consideration for anyone. Who only brings enough Champagne for two people?! I know it can be expensive, but come on!

And the other table starting to talk half-way through your family’s toast to your Grandma?! That’s pretty much the definition of rude. I can handle a lot, but I would have flipped a s#?! over that – obviously you and your family are much better people than I am.

Honestly, at this point, I wouldn’t change my Honeymoon plans. I would go with my original plan because it sounds like FBIL is just doing it for attention or to be competitive or something stupid. I can be really vindictive though, so it’s probably better that you aren’t me. Lol!

If your FI is really upset about everything, then maybe he should speak with his brother about things – not to get him to change the plans (which I think are BS since he knew what your plans were ahead of time), but to let him know that his inability to plan put a lot of stress on you both. If he doesn’t want to bring that up, then I think he should at least let him know that your family and the two of you were really hurt by the lack of respect shown during the toast to Grandma. They may be perfectly nice people and they may not have known her, but that was completely out of line.

The whole lot of them sound like assholes. You’re a better person than me – I would have put him in his place long ago.

@flapperphilosopher:  Your FBIL sounds completely out of touch with reality. I’m sorry your first experience hosting was so dramatic but it sounds like you handled it very graciously.

Sounds like you are an amazing and gracious hostess, and did your grandmother proud! I hope the extra guests and FBIL at least THANKED you for all of your efforts?
